Mender

Are you in a state of disappointment?

A state of hurt?

Has someone pained your heart

messed with your mind?

 

Is it all you can do

not to focus on imaginary conversations

you would have

if you could

speak vengeance?

If you had the courage to hurt back?

 

All your focus

All your focus

on that offender…

 

Because, after all,

the offense continues…

in your mind

or in real life.

 

Your heart begs to be mended.

 

If you could,

you would have a surgeon stitch

all the torn parts

because it hurts

and it consumes

and it is all you can think about.

 

We are a broken people.

 

We need mending.

 

Only the Uncreated

can truly mend

the created’s heart.

 

The only thing is…

You’ve got to force your focus

off the offender

and onto the Mender.

 

Only then can you genuinely heal.

 

And like the best of all surgeons

He stitches up

and binds up

and HEALS

your broken heart.

 

So that your focus

will stay on Him

the One who loves and cares the most.

 

Let Him mend.

Don’t stay broken.

 

Then God’s mending love

can reach out to others broken

through you.
